be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put $1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha
, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

. and that member this evening is the departing energy secretary steven chu. so if the worst happens prepare for president steven chu. wolf blitzer, already saying that he welcomes president chu. >> steven chu, the energy secretary, the designated hitter god forbid in case of emergency. this will be one of theirs last official acts including, of course, the defense secretary leon panetta. momentarily we'll hear paul irving, the house sergeant at arms announce that the president of the united states is coming in with those very famous words, mr. speaker, the president of the united states. then the president will walk in. you see members of the cabinet walking in including dennis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrat

( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus

will get a vigorous private sector if the government backs off and let's the dynamic energy of the private sector go forward. neil: he will be talking about not only bigger government but smarter government. government can do a lot of good. do you think government can? >> look, we don't need smarter government. we don't need more efficient government. we needless government. people in middle class and people in the lower classes they don't need more government, they need jobs. we need to create jobs. we need the economy to grow so that we can fund these government programs. look, government could be run better. everything could be run better but we don't need more government. we need more jobs. we need need more investment. with we need more prosperity. we're not on the path to that. i hope tonight he will take a different course. i'm not expecting it but i'm hopeful. >> thank you. neil: president's cabinet coming in. new addition, john kerry, replacement for hillary clinton as secretary of state. leon panetta the outgoing defense secretary. that hagel confirmation approved in committee is
to achieve real growth until our economy. one of the best ways to encourage growth is through our energy industry. god also blessed america with abundant coal and natural gas. instead of wasting more money on companies let's open up federal land for exploration. we can grow our energy industry, it will make us energy independent and it will help bring administering back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will make it easier for smaller businesses to hire and grow. we agree with the president, we should lowerer our corporate tax rate so companies will bring their money and jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow the economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attack the best and brightest. -- attract the best and the brightest. first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. helping the middle class grow also requires an education system that brings the skills that jobs entail. we need to incentivize local schools and career training. we nee
care, high energy race. is that the kind of government we want to buy a? is that the government we want to put our money and? i don't think so. we've got to step back and responsibly address those. do we believe there's appropriate things for government to spend money on? absolutely. i didn't support the stimulus package of 2009 because i thought it would do what he did, which is a solo bunch of money and not get remarkable results for our economy. in fact come in at her harmed her ability to come out of the recession. one of the things they could have done had it been spent and a different way would have been to revitalize the infrastructure of our country. water, sewer, rose, huge investments. but a fraction is used for something resulting in the public goods. so there are things government ought to spend money on an infrastructure is one of them. >> david morgan with readers. i would like to know if you expect the north korean nuclear test to accelerate efforts to get a deal done on the sequester.

including, for example, the secretary of energy. the question still is when will we see those major women appointed to top-level cabinet positions whether it's justice or something else? >> well, the attorney general intends to stay. the president just appointed sally jewell to the department of interior last week. he'll be filling out his cabinet in the coming weeks. i think when he's finished, you will see it is a cabinet that reflects the diversity of our country. not just the cabinet but sub-cabinet and one that he believes will put america first but the middle class first, help those who want to move into the middle class, and move our country forward. we're very optimistic, charlie, about the future. and it's time to get going now. >> valerie jarrett, good to see you. thank you for joining us. >> thanks, nora. thanks, charlie. >>> former vice president dick cheney's condemning and praising president obama in a wide-ranging interview you'll only see on "cbs this morning." cheney has criticized the president's choice of national security advisers for his second term. we began by askin
security of our coming generations. it is how we figure out clean forms of energy, make medical advances that save lives, and ultimately reduce the cost of health care. develop the technologies that defend our country and make our fighting men and women safer and advance our economy. more than half, more than half of economic growth in this country since world war ii has resulted from technological advances. none of which would have been impossible or almost none of which would have been possible without the basic research funded by the federal government. sometimes this sounds very theoretical, but we live in it every day. let me hold up for you this morning this fetching little iphone. cannot get along without this thing. you all have one in your pocket. or perhaps you're looking at it right now and not listening to me.

humble man and realistic man. the job requires energies of mind and body that he no longer has. he has felt free to step down. it is the end of an era, it is the beginning of another. it is the end of the popes that are very closely involved with the vatican council. he opens the way for future popes to retire the way he has done. >> he described himself as a transitional figure, a caretaker for the catholic church. >> i think that pope benedict have the very difficult task of moving the church for word from the enormously impressive pontificate of pope john paul. it was very difficult to imagine another pope after pope john paul. they needed somebody to be different. i think he have the strength and the character to do that. >> he certainly have the intellect. the catholic church is declining in numbers in europe and america. it is growing in africa and latin america. is it time for a pontiff from outside europe? >> it is certainly possible. just before being elected pope, he thought that the time might be drawing close for a pulp from another part of the world. i would say possible.

legislate to force energy companies to put customers on the lowest tariff. will he explain why his energy bill contains no such commitment and why he has broken that promise? >> i have to tell the honorable gentleman that he is completely wrong. the energy bill does exactly what i said in the house; it is about legislating to force companies to give people the lowest tariff. >> oh, no. >> order. it is very discourteous of the house to issue a collective groan-notably on the opposition benches. it is quite inexplicable. i have called the good doctor; let us hear from the good doctor. >> schools in cambridgeshire were underfunded for decades by both the last labour government and the one before that, and the latest figure shows that they receive £600 per pupil per year less than the english average-the worst funding in the entire country. does the prime minister agree that that is simply unfair? will he support the cambridge news "fair deal for our schools" campaign, and pledge to end the discrepancy during the current parliament? >> i will consider carefully what my honorable friend has s

can bring a level of energy and a dynamism to the job that he simply at this stage in his life, he personally is simply not prepared to give. and, therefore, i think you could read this as hits decision to clear the way for someone else who can in effect give the church a new lease on life at what is undeniably a fairly difficult cross roots for it. >> american catholics at least half hope the next pope is more progressiv progressive on things like birth control and gay rights. joining us on the phone -- how do you feel about the pope's resignation? >> i agree with john, it's a stunning day in the history of the church. it appears to be an ability of humility. this comes right before catholics begin to celebrate lent. the season of atonement where we ask for forgiveness. and i think it makes a lot of us ask the question of what's possible, you know. like you mentioned, the leadership of the catholic church is facing a very great crisis. you mentioned the sex abuse. but also the overconcern for contraception and gay people and abortion rather than addressing the real moral issues li

, but perhaps not with the energy and vitality that this job requires or, in his opinion, after a prayerful thought, deserves, he decided to step down. so i think it has to do with his aging, and remember, thomas, he was the oldest pope to be elected in something like 300 years, when he was elected eight years ago. so, i think there's a good possibility we will see a younger cardinal elected to pope this time. >> and papal politics are kind of taboo. people don't really talk about that going into the college of cardinals and the conclave, but what are the main names that are being discussed, publicly, who might be his successor? >> well, that's very interesting. and i know it's not supposed to be politics, and first of all, the vatican has said that the pope has made it very clear, he doesn't want to influence this, obviously, uncharted territory, to have a living pope, during the election of a new pope, but, you know, there are a lot of names being passed around. if you want to look at the bookmakers, there's cardinal arinze from africa. he's from nigeria. he was considered a front-runner
standpoint, item by item. the new defense that energy that we crafted under president obama posey leadership only one year ago. it is not that we do not understand that the department of defense needs to make a contribution to the nation's capital situation resolution. that is why we have accommodated billions of dollars in cuts over the next 10 years. they are beginning to make that enormous transition. that was on top of several hundred billions of dollars of cuts that secretary gates began, eliminating unneeded and underperforming programs. all of this is on top of the historic reductions associated with the winding down of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. i also understand that the taxpayer deserves very careful use of each and every defense dollar that we do get from you. that is why we have striven and will continue to strive to get better buy-in power for defense dollar. -- buying power for defense dollar. but they use of the taxpayer dollar is undermined by the sequestration. sequestration is not the result of an emergency. it is not because discretionary cuts are the answer to the
